What are the characteristics of an ideal fuel (or good fuel)?
The characteristics of an ideal fuel are:
It must have high calorific value.
It must burn without releasing any smoke or toxic gases.
It need to have proper ignition temperature.
It should be inexpensive and easily accessible.
The calorific value and ignition temperature of fuel A are 55 kJ/g and 80oC, respectively. These values for fuel B are 80 kJ/g and 10°C, respectively. On burning, the fuel A produces CO2 and H2O while the fuel B produces CO2, CO and SO2. Give three points of relative advantages and disadvantages of these two fuels.
